“OPPO has been exploring the possibilities of Extended Reality (XR) for a long time, and with Air Glass, we have finally created a smart glass product that is truly within the reach of consumers,” said Levin Liu, OPPO Vice President and Head of OPPO Research Institute. “As its futuristic design suggests, OPPO Air Glass is set to revolutionize the way we view and consume information. The easy-to-use display can present key messages we need right in front of our eyes. With OPPO Air Glass, the world will never look the same again.”

The unique monocle waveguide principle underpins the OPPO Air Glass. With free-flowing curves and a lightweight, minimalist appearance, the OPPO Air Glass is based on OPPO’s distinctive design philosophy. With a weight of approximately 30g, the OPPO Air Glass is one of the lightest monocle waveguide devices on the market.

The primary body is inspired by feathers, being light, sleek, and curved, with a touch bar that looks like an attractive feather shaft. The cicada’s wings, on the other hand, inspired the design of the monocular waveguide lens. All of the components, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 Platform, are housed in a light and compact chassis.

The frame of OPPO Air Glass is manufactured with CNC technique, imparting the design with a touch of exquisiteness and precision. 

OPPO Air Glass delivers bright and sharp content when worn indoors or outdoors, ensuring a superior aR experience at all times, thanks to the integration of OPPO’s own Micro Projector, sophisticated Micro LED, and custom waveguide technology.

The OPPO Air Glass display system is powered by OPPO’s self-developed Spark Micro Projector, which is one of the industry’s smallest projection systems, measuring just 0.5cc (about the size of a coffee bean). To improve heat dissipation and stability, the projector has a CNC aluminum shell with a glass lens module. A cutting-edge Micro LED with a brightness of up to 3 million nits powers the projector.

The OPPO Air Glass features a custom optical diffraction waveguide that supports two display modes – 16-level grayscale and 256-level grayscale – and can produce up to 1400 nits of average brightness, ensuring a vibrant and sharp visual display in a variety of lighting settings. Additionally, the waveguide is encased in two layers of sapphire glass on both sides, providing protection as well as greater transparency.

Official pricing will be revealed during the local launch in the Philippines.
